LA MUJER QUE AMASTE ... THE WOMAN YOU LOVED ...
Eva Durán trans. Anabel Torres


La mujer que amaste
en la noche del vino
La hechicera
que danzó sobre tí
que te besó en el espejo
Ha colmado su cuerpo
con la música
y nada guarda
en honor de tu nombre
Ni siquiera
el consuelo pueril
de su desprecio


The woman you loved
During a night of wine
The sorceress
Who danced above you
Who kissed you in the mirror
Has satiated her body
With music
And keeps nothing
In honour of your namesake
Not even the petty consolation
Of her disdain.
